Music

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A music education will engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to a variety of musical canon.

The national curriculum for music aims for all pupils to: –

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the classic composers and musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others
  • have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the interrelated dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations
